Occupy protesters defy orders to leave
Deadlines pass in Philadelphia and Los Angeles
Wall Street protesters in Los Angeles and Philadelphia defied orders to leave their months-old encampments, making it through the deadlines without the acrimony that marked earlier forced evictions in other cities. Protesters chanted “we won, we won’’ as riot gear-clad Los Angeles police left on Monday, though there were four arrests. In Philadelphia, the camp was mostly quiet amid a heavy police presence.
